Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience

Upper Westchester

Walk into the depths of a dark forest and discover fantastic beasts and iconic wizarding world moments. Follow a trail through a mysterious and magical forest full of interactive moments, mesmerizing lights, and theatrical illusions. Come face-to-face with magical creatures from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts, including Hippogriffs, Centaurs, Unicorns, Nifflers, and more. Use a provided wand to cast spells, and even conjure a Patronus. Lots of fun photo-ops.

The walking trail takes approx. 45–75 minutes. A family experience, but some elements are spooky for certain individuals. A trail can be taken that avoids spiders for those with arachnophobia.

🍽 Enjoy a selection of delicious food and drink in a Village inspired by the Wizarding World.

🎟 Save with Family Bundles ($57.50/person for 3+ tickets, max. 2 adults).

🚙 45-60 minute drive from mid-Manhattan; $8 parking if bought online (or $10 if purchased on-site).
